EVEN, OF ANGER.
BUT THIS THURSDAY IN LUBBOCK -- RED, IS THE COLOR OF A FIGHT.
It is one of the most important ones that the American Heart Association has here, especially for women.
GO RED FOR WOMEN IS MORE THAN JUST LUNCH...
ACCORDING TO THIS YEAR'S CHAIR, MARINDA HEINRICH.
Both my mother and my grandmother passed away from stroke and heart disease, so it's really important to me to get the word out to other women... about what we can do to be more healthy.
HEINRICH SAYS GO RED IS A DAY, DEDICATED TO EDUCATING AND LIVING A HEART HEALTHY LIFE.
I think a lot of it is attributable that women don't talk about their heart health. If they have a problem, they don't usually share it with others.
SO THROUGH GO RED -- THE A-H-A HOPES WOMEN WILL CHANGE THE WAY THEY LOOK AT THEIR HEALTH.
IT WILL OFFER FREE HEALTH SCREENINGS, INFORMATIONAL EXHIBITS, A STYLE SHOW FEATURING LOCAL SURVIVORS...
AND A SPECIAL KEYNOTE ADDRESS -- FROM FORMER FIRST DAUGHTER, JENNA BUSH HAGER.
You can come and get those free screenings, and you may not even realize that you have a problem. But this may be a wake up call or a warning that you do... your cholesterol may be high, or you may have high blood pressure, and you may want to get in touch with your doctor and try to take care of those things early on so they don't become a huge problem.
THE MONEY RAISED THROUGH 'GO RED' SUPPORTS RESEARCH AND EDUCATION...
